It’s been a sluggish evening for the Stanford offense. The Cardinal has turned the ball over three times, and even though it has gained more than 400 yards, it only has a single touchdown to show for its efforts. Nothing is coming easy — it never does, here at Autzen Stadium.
The Cardinal has welcomed its official 2013 recruiting class, as 12 promising high school recruits from eight different states signed their Letters of Intent with Stanford.
Recruiting analysis is an inherently hypocritical business. In a good year, we write about all these highly ranked players that will change our team’s future; in a bad year, we just complain that recruiting rankings are worthless anyway.
Twelve high-school seniors signed National Letters of Intent to join the Stanford football on Wednesday morning. Just a year after the Cardinal was a big winner on National Signing Day in 2012, the proceedings were far from dramatic this time around, as Stanford signed all its committed recruits and failed to lure four-star receiver Jordan Cunningham away from Vanderbilt.
